It’s nearly time to rest and it is a good time to remind ourselves of this incredible beverage that you can drink before bed!

“Golden Milk” is a beautiful, tasty and incredibly healthy drink that is especially suitable for consumption in the evening, and the benefits of drinking it are remarkable.

The main ingredient in this recipe is turmeric. Turmeric contains curcumin, polyphenol identified as the main active ingredient, which has over 150 potential therapeutic activities, including antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties.

When combined with black pepper, the health benefits of curcumin are increased multiple times.

Further health benefits:
  • Anti-inflammatory activity, antioxidant, antiseptic, analgesic
  • Strengthens the immune system
  • Anti – cancerous
  • Helps maintain cholesterol levels
  • It stimulates the digestive health
  • Liver detoxifier
  • It regulates the metabolism and controls weight
  • High blood pressure
  • Memory and brain
  • Different conditions of the skin
  • Neurological disorders

Golden milk

Step 1 – curcumin paste

  • ¼ cup of curcumin powder
  • ½ teaspoon of black pepper
  • ½ cup filtered water

Mix all ingredients in a small cooking pot and stir well. Turn the heat to medium and stir constantly until the mixture becomes a thick paste. It doesn’t take long, so don’t leave the stove. Allow the mixture to cool and then keep it in a small jar in the fridge.

Step 2 – Golden milk

  • 1 tablespoon of almond milk (hemp or coconut milk are also a good option, and Ayurveda recommends cow’s milk, but just in case you have organic milk from a cow that hasn’t been treated inhumanely)
  • 1 teaspoon of coconut oil
  • ¼ teaspoon or more of the turmeric paste
  • Honey

Combine all ingredients, except the honey, in a cooking pot. Turn the heat to medium. Stir the whole time and don’t allow it to boil. Add some honey for taste.

  1. You should recheck that recipe, especially the measurements.

  2. You should recheck that recipe, especially the measurements.

    1. I agree with you that just one tablespoon of milk (whatever type) would not make a full cup/mug of golden milk as per the photo! I winder if the tablespoon should be 1 cup (American) or 1/4 litre (approx half pint)? Also the title/intro says turmeric but the instructions are for curcumin. Turmeric powder would be a lot easier to buy in larger volume (curcumin is often sold as capsules/tablets), I wonder if that would work.

  3. I concur about the measurements... 1 TB of milk is hardly enough to make this concoction drinkable. I cup of milk perhaps??

  4. It doesnt matter about the milk. fresh ground pepper is a very good peperdine is a carrier and multiplies good effects. What does matter is the oil as tumeric is not water soluable. Honey is good as it makes it all taste good. Tumeric is not the greatest taste in the world. But very very good for you. Easy to grow too. Just stick in the ground and it takes off. Its a Rhisome like ginger. Milk is not so good for you. Some will argue. If you got an organic cow in your back yard with organic feed great. Cost co got caught selling organic milk that wasnt along with wal mart big law suit. So organic isnt necessarily organic. I think cows milk makes phlem in the body lungs . Try a bannana tumeric smothie with coco nut oil. make it to taste. experiment. be brave. Tumeric is great. I would stay away from curcumin. Eat the real deal.
